document. back in 1994, republicans used the contract with america to take back control of the house of representatives swells take back the senate. what we have seen this morning is house republicans are unveiling this pledge with america, but the bottom line is what they're trying to do is tell voters voss the country, look, we are going to reform washington. we lost our way for the past eight years or so, but we are going to help you out. what democrats have done over the past couple of years is not enough. >> are all republicans on board with this pledge? >> well, you know, mixed reviews. national review, a very well respected weekly magazine says that we'll take the pledge. they say -- they compare it to the contract with america. they say the inevitable question is -- is the pledge as bold as the contract? their answer, the pledge is bolder, but we are hearing a different theme from red state, a very nunsial blogging site. they say when aamerica needs a bold, simple fresh plan to put america on the path to constitutional insanity, we get an 8,000 word term paper of inside the b

, who covers capitol hill for "the new york times." thanks for being back with us. so what's this delay all about? >> well, the senate clearly doesn't want to get embroiled in this issue before the election. it's just too unpredictable and the story line for democrats is clean, as things stand now. they're making the case that republicans would block tax relief for the middle class to hold out for tax break force the wealthy. republicans, of course shall want to extend those tax cuts for everyone. and so it's easier in the view of democrats to push this until a lame duck session. the political situation will obviously be less intense then. but as you said, the house speaker today left open the possibility of forcing a vote. and that could get really interesting next week. >> woodruff: now why the different calculus in the senate and in the house. >> the calculus probably isn't different. the conventional wisdom still is that in the end the house will decide to go home and campaign without taking this vote. but there's no reason for speaker pelosi to relent right now when she thinks she'
